Derek Jeter has announced he is retiring after the 2014 season

USA TODAY Sports

Derek Jeter retirement:  Derek Jeter posted on Facebook that the 2014 season will be his final season as a major league baseball player.

Jeter, who turns 40 this season, would have been a free agent after the season.

Regardless of what happens this season, Jeter is almost certainly going to be elected to the Hall of Fame the first time he is eligible, in five years and eleven or so months, and he will go down in history as one of the best shortstop ever to play the game.
